This method uses the numbered List in Adobe Indesign. See method 1 here. Let’s get to it!
Designed your Ticket and then create a text box where your number will be. PUT A SPACE in the text box. Otherwise, this method will not work.
Go to Type > Bulleted & Numbered Lists > Define Lists…
Clicked “New…” It will then open to give you some options. Name your list, and click all the options. “Continued Numbers across Stories” & “Continue Numbers from Previous Document in Book”.
Make sure you click the text tool and click into where your numbers are supposed to be.
Click into the top control panel, or go to the Window > Control, to get it to show up. Make sure you are in the Paragraph section, and then ON YOUR KEYBOARD CLICK ALT + THE LIST SYMBOL AT THE TOP. (See circled items below).
It will then open up into the “Bullets and Numbering” panel.
- List Type: Numbers
- List: The list you defined earlier
- Format: Choose whatever format you want
- Mode: Continue from Previous Number…
Check the preview to make sure it works, and then click OK.
You can see that it now shows the first number! You can remove the period by changing in the Bullets and Numbering Panel “Number:” It currently says ^#.^t. Just take out the period.
Copy/Duplicate the elements onto the page as desired. InDesign will automatically count them for you.
You can create more on pages, just by right-clicking and either click “Duplicate” or “Insert Pages”.
See more tickets yay!
Hope that helps! Happy creating!
